Expanding the whole of your heart?
As temperatures in the Arctic are the warmest in 400 years;
As the polar ice cap continues to melt, losing 40% of its volume since 1958;
As Earth's ozone hole is now three times bigger than the United States;
When, in this new millennium, will we finally come to terms with ourselves?

Consider these great cultural shifts,
Guided within geographic boundaries
Coursed over generations of evolution
Now altered historically in time.

Neon cave paintings glowing in the dark recesses of your mind.
Fires burning neural pathways into your reasoning's cosmic consciousness.
Self examination personified by love and despair expanding the whole of your heart.
Earth-crying for a healing touch

Riding these waves down under.
